Power House Movie: Holy Frit

February 21 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

$10 – $15

“The last time I was this entertained by an art documentary was Exit Through the Giftshop featuring none other than Banksy. “— Josiah Teal, FilmThreat

Gesa Power House Theatre proudly presents the acclaimed art documentary “Holy Frit” on Wednesday, February 21 at 7 p.m.

In this visceral three-year race against time, a talented, yet unknown L.A. artist, bluffs his way into winning a commission to create the largest stained-glass window of its kind. The problem is, he doesn’t know how to make it.

The documentary “Holy Frit,” directed by Justin S. Monroe, takes place in the chaos at Judson Studios, among the artisans who have devoted their lives to stained glass. This includes principal designer Tim Carey, who began as an oil painter. After netting a bid in 2014 to build a stained-glass window as big as a basketball court, Carey invites legendary glass maestro Narcissus Quagliata to the studio for two weeks, for a crash course in techniques. One such radical method is sprinkling “frit” (finely ground colored glass) across the completed panels. The “frit” fuses with the existing panels, creating painterly impressionistic effects. Everyone is outside their comfort zone.

Tickets ($15 Adults, $10 Students) are available online or by calling the box office at 509-529-6500.
